Golßen/ Düssel­dorf — The share­hol­ders of the fruit and vege­ta­ble proces­sing company Spree­wald­kon­serve Golßen have sold all their shares to the French Andros Group, Biars-sur-Cère, as part of a stra­te­gic part­ners­hip. The tran­sac­tion compri­ses the two company divi­si­ons and produc­tion sites in Golßen/Germany and in Szigetvár/Hungary. Network Corpo­rate Finance exclu­si­vely advi­sed Spree­wald­kon­serve Golßen and its share­hol­ders on the transaction.


The share­hol­ders of the fruit and vege­ta­ble proces­sing company Spree­wald­kon­serve Golßen sell their shares to the Andros Group as part of a stra­te­gic part­ners­hip. Andros, with annual sales of more than EUR 2.2 billion in 2019 and head­quar­te­red in Biars-sur-Cère in southern France, is a leading manu­fac­tu­rer of jams, fruit and dairy products. Already since 1991, the company has been present in Germany through the fruit manu­fac­tu­rer of the Oden­wald brand in Breu­berg. Further­more, the Elster­werda dairy plant with the “Mark Bran­den­burg” brand belongs to the group. With the acqui­si­tion of Spree­wald­kon­serve, Andros streng­t­hens its posi­tion in Germany and in the fruit and vege­ta­ble proces­sing market and plans to leverage syner­gies in regio­nal sourcing and distribution.
